    not that im some sort of expert here or anything but what has chad dawson done to make him the 12th best light heavy of all time? i mean im shure my list has its faults but i really just cant see chad dawson even being in the top 20 light heavys yet.

    Good list Heskey.. Not too dissimilar to my own.. See you've got Jones.. Good call, but I wanted to rate him at SMW & MW to make room for more fighters overall..
    The only other reason I left him out is cos that's the only weight he got KO'd in..

    2 Tommy Loughran
    3 Billy Conn
    4 Gus Lesnevich
    5 Bob Foster
    6 Matthew Saad Muhammad
    7 Georges Carpentier
    8 Maxie Rosenbloom
    9 Michael Spinks
    10 Willie Pastrano
    11 Bob Fitzsimmons
    12 Dariusz Michalczewski
    13 Bobby Czyz
    14 Roy Jones Jr ( i do not consider him a true lightHeavyweight,that is why he ranks so low)
    15 Philadelphia Jack O'Brien

    Sorry.. I missed your bottom sentence earlier..

    Well spotted!... I threw him in as a wild card.. Some of my friends in the US, who are unbiased & know their stuff, absolutely rave about him, so I wanted a reaction.. In truth, I'm not all that clued up on him, & have gone solely on trusted opinions, so if he disappoints, I'll swap him for Tommy Loughran, who I shamefully forgot!.. Well it gets us all talking
    15's Good for starters.. I noted you rate Loughran highly.. I kind've overlooked him, as he was very feather fisted with a dodgy chin, but boxing ability, he was a genius, & I'm now reconsidering.. Billy Conn, is another.. I may have underrated him to.. Great boxer, good chin, but once again, no power.. He did well against Joe Louis though..
    What are your thoughts to try & persuade me on these two?...
